Website to share news, activities of House Manufacturing Caucus
The bipartisan House Manufacturing Congressional Caucus has launched a website to keep the public up to date on its activity and debates.
U.S. Reps. Don Manzullo (R-IL) and Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) have launched a new website to keep citizens informed of the activities of the House Manufacturing Caucus, which they co-chair.
The website – www.housemanufacturingcaucus.com – will chronicle the caucus’ efforts in the 112th Congress to strengthen U.S. manufacturing and help employers put Americans back to work. Manzullo and Ryan co-founded the Caucus in 2003. Nearly 80 Members of Congress have already joined the House Manufacturing Caucus, and membership continues to climb.
“The House Manufacturing Caucus continues its mission to strengthen American manufacturing, and the new website will help share our efforts with the people,” Manzullo said. “I encourage anyone interested in manufacturing to visit www.housemanufacturingcaucus.com and sign up for our email updates so we can keep everyone informed about our efforts to bolster American manufacturing and help put Americans back to work.”
“I am excited the House Manufacturing Caucus can now share our efforts to help protect American workers and employers through the website www.housemanufacturingcaucus.com,” Ryan said. “Manufacturing is the foundation of our economy, so it is essential we do all that we can to strengthen and protect this vital American industry. This online resource will help us keep the public informed on our fight to support high-end, advanced manufacturing and create jobs.”
The new website includes a list of all caucus members with links to their Congressional web pages, along with lists of upcoming and past events with links to documents and speakers. It also has a “resources” section with links to government agencies and organizations vital to manufacturing. The “media center” offers news releases and articles on manufacturing from caucus members, and it also features links to the caucus’ pages on social networking sites.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
